Congratulations to Our First Virtual Training Class!

Tuesday, Aug 4, 2020

Please join us as we welcome our newest CASA Volunteers, who were sworn in by Judge Christopher Morozin by video conference in late July.

For the first time in CASA Lake County's history, these new volunteers completed the 40-hour CASA training course online by video conference. This was made possible through a heroic effort on the part of our training team of Debra Lerner-Schmidt and Suzanne Cash. Together, they have built an incredibly engaging and educational training course for our new CASAs, and they were burning the midnight oil for two months this spring converting that program into a version that could be conducted safely online.

We're so proud of the work they have done to ensure that we can continue to provide volunteers to the new children entering the child welfare system every month, all while preserving the health and safety of our volunteers!
